My Review of The NIRA Pro Facial Laser Device After 3 Months

 Three months ago, I started using the NIRA Pro Facial Laser device to see if it really eliminates fine lines and wrinkles. Keep reading to discover my full review of the NIRA Facial Laser device and my results with before and after photos.


 Three months ago, I received a sample of the new NIRA Pro laser device to review and share my opinion with others. I had previously reviewed the older model of a NIRA Precision Laser skincare device in 2019 and loved the results that I received from this beauty device. So when the new and improved NIRA facial device was available, I just had to see how this wrinkle eliminator worked.

What is the NIRA Pro Facial Laser Device?

The NIRA Pro Laser is the first and only painless at-home laser with a large enough treatment tip to target the full face, neck, chest, and back of hands. (The NIRA Precision Laser has a smaller tip and is made for the area around the eyes.)

+ FDA-Cleared, clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines

+ Stimulates natural collagen production for younger-looking skin in 90 days

+ 5 comfort levels for no pain, redness, or downtime

+ Easy-to-use, portable skincare device for use at home or on-the-go

Product details

 The NIRA Pro is a painless at-home laser treatment that is FDA-Cleared and clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. In just minutes a day, you can treat your full face, neck, chest, and back of hands and see wrinkles reduced in the comfort of your own home.

How does the NIRA Pro Laser work?

 The NIRA Pro Laser uses laser technology to gently heat the skin dermis to stimulate natural collagen production.  As we age, our bodies naturally stop producing collagen – causing the skin to wrinkle and sag. It is the production of collagen that helps our skin become firmer and the collagen then starts to fill in those fine lines and wrinkles to make them less noticeable. 

~ Most NIRA users start to see some results in 30 days but it takes 90 days for the device to reveal firmer, youthful-looking skin.

~ 3-5 minutes a day to see visible results

~  Over time, NIRA Pro provides more power than most professional treatments offer in a single visit - resulting in clinical-grade wrinkle reduction at home in just 90 days.

What I Liked About The NIRA Pro Laser

~ It was easy to use

~ It had a big tip to cover more skin surface

~ I only needed to use it for 5 minutes a day

~ I could use it in the comfort of my home

~ It was painless

~ It was portable

~ It was small

~ No batteries needed

~ I saw results after 30 days 

~ My skin looked healthier

~ It reduced and eliminated my fine lines and wrinkles

 The above is what I liked about using the NIRA Laser for the face device. As you can see there were many positive things that I liked about the NIRA Skin Laser and only 3 items that I did not like about the NIRA Facial device. I will go more into detail about my likes and dislikes but first I want to share before photos of my face before I started using the NIRA Pro Laser.

What I Disliked About The NIRA Pro Laser

~ I had to use it every day for 3 months

~ It had to be recharged every 3 days

My Before Photos Before I Started Using The NIRA

I took these photos three months ago before I started using the NIRA Pro. Looking at the above photos made me realize which areas of my face I wanted to see improved by using the NIRA. The NIRA is a device that helps reduce and even eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. 

So the areas on my face that I wanted to improve were

~ The deep lines on my forehead

~ The lines around my eyes

~ The undereye bags

~ The wrinkle near my mouth

My experience of using the NIRA for three months

 I started using the NIRA on September 9th, 2023, and discovered that it was simple to use. I placed the facial laser on my face and pressed the button. After hearing 2 beeps, I moved the device to another area of my face and repeated the process until I covered my face and neck. The total time to use the NIRA every day was about 10 minutes.

 I used the device at the highest level and did not experience any pain. I used the NIRA every morning while I was making my coffee and that routine helped me to remember to use it every day. During the 3 months, life got busy, and I missed a couple of mornings, so I used the NIRA before I went to bed.

I did some traveling

 During the 3 months that I was using the NIRA, I traveled three different times. I was glad that the NIRA was small and did not take up much space in my suitcase. I also loved how quiet the device was and I even used the NIRA at the airport a couple of times. 

I saw some noticeable results after 30 days

 After using the NIRA for 30 days, I started to notice that my skin looked smoother and less tired. That alone encouraged me to keep using the NIRA every day. 

I had to use the NIRA every day

  I am not good with routines when it comes to my beauty and I like routines that don't take much time. I get bored very quickly. So having to use the NIRA every day was not easy for me. I kept the beauty device near my kitchen and used the NIRA Pro while I was making my pour-over coffee every morning.

I had to remember to charge the NIRA every three days

 The NIRA Pro only lasted 3 days before it needed to be charged. There were some days that I forgot to charge the unit and it stopped working halfway through my session. While the beauty device only needed an hour to charge, that would throw off my schedule for the day and I had to remember to use it later in the day.

Three months seemed like a long time to see the results

  As I mentioned earlier, I get bored quickly so three months seemed like a long time to use the NIRA to see results. I had to remind myself that results for anything can take time and used the NIRA after I went to the gym to compare it to seeing body changes. 

After 2 months the lines on my forehead were less noticeable

 After using the NIRA for 2 months, I started to notice that the lines on my forehead were less noticeable. So that encouraged me to keep using it. Five minutes a day was getting easier and I was excited to see the end results of using the NIRA for three months. I could not wait to take the after photos of my face. 

Did The NIRA Work?

After 3 months of using the NIRA Pro Facial Laser Beauty Device, I took some selfie photos. I then placed the before and after photos next to each other. The difference between the two photos was amazing and I am happy to say that the NIRA Pro reduced and eliminated fine lines and wrinkles on my face.

                                   Before and After Photos


 Looking at my before and after photos makes me smile. Right away, I noticed that my skin looks more firm and has a glow to it. The wrinkle on my forehead is almost gone and the lines around my eyes are so much smaller. My under-eye bags are gone and the lines around my mouth have disappeared.

Will I keep using the NIRA?

 I will continue using the NIRA on a daily basis or until I see the other wrinkles and fine lines gone. While NIRA recommends using the facial device for 3 months on a daily basis (and then a couple times a week to keep the skin results), it is safe to use after 3 months.

Want to see more before and after photos?

Head to the NIRA Website to see more before and after photos. On the NIRA website, you will see plenty of before photos of people, who had even more wrinkles than I did, and their dramatic after photos.

4 Rare Gemstones a Mother Can Gift Their Daughters On Their Wedding Day


 Like you always knew, your daughter has become a strong, beautiful, and accomplished woman. In a few weeks, your girl will marry the love of her life and start a new journey. 

 As a mother, you probably want to give her something that defies tradition and monotony. Gold, platinum, or diamond jewelry has become overrated since everyone can buy it. Instead, you want something that’s as precious as your daughter. 

 In that case, you should look into rare gemstones. There are over 200 types of gemstones worldwide, but only a few are rare. Examples include tanzanite, taaffeite, and benitoite. These gemstones are beautiful and can bring unique metaphysical properties to a newlywed couple. 

 In this blog, we will discuss some rare gemstones you can gift your daughter for her wedding.

#1. Benitoite

 Benitoite was discovered in the early 20th century in California. It has an attractive sparkling quality that rivals diamonds, making it the perfect gift for your daughter. The per-carat cost is between USD 6,500 and USD 8,500 since benitoite is a valuable and precious gem. 

 The physical benefits of wearing benitoite include better metabolism, leading to weight loss. Moreover, it might help relieve the wearer of breathing issues, acne, and eczema. 

 Due to its blue-colored appearance, this rare gemstone was considered to have similar properties as a sapphire. Just like blue sapphires, benitoite also represents the mysterious depths of the sea and sky, offering limitless potential. It can restore lost energy, enhance intuitiveness, balance emotions, and calm the mind of anyone who wears it. However, investigations later revealed that this gemstone has a different composition than sapphires.

#2. Padparadscha Sapphire

 You’ve probably heard about blue sapphires. But did you know that these stones can have a unique orangy pink color? 

 Yes, the Padparadscha sapphire is one such specimen. It resembles the color of the Lotus flower and a gorgeous sunset. You can give your daughter this type of sapphire on her wedding day because it’s one of the rarest gemstones. 

 According to Leibish, Padparadscha sapphires cost approximately USD 33,000 for an 8.20-carat pear-shaped stone. That means it has a 40% lower price tag than pink diamonds. 

 It comes with metaphysical features that can bring peace and tranquility to the wearer’s life. Wearing this sapphire can help your daughter foster emotional balance while enhancing her intuition. Padparadscha sapphires can also have a calming and soothing effect on her mind and body. 

#3. Taaffeite

 In 1945, gemologist Richard Taaffe discovered this in a jeweler’s spinel gemstone collection. Upon analysis, he found that this gemstone didn’t belong with spinels. That’s because it had distinct compositions and properties. 

 Later named taaffeite, this stone became the only one to be identified as a new mineral species after being polished and cut. This gemstone is extremely rare and is only found in parts of China, Tanzania, and Sri Lanka. Only 50 such gemstones are being circulated in the market, making it the rarest wedding gift for your daughter. 

 Usually, taaffeite comes in many colors, like violet, mauve, lavender, and pink. It has an average cost of USD 1,500 to USD 2,500 per carat. The saturation of the gemstone’s color and intensity influences its value.

 Taaffeite would be a perfect wedding gift because of its spiritual powers. These stones can bring emotional balance and compassion to the wearer. It can also facilitate spiritual growth and encourage chakra healing. For instance, the stone opens the wearer's heart chakra to attract self-love and acceptance. 

 Physically, this stone might help boost the immune system and support tissue growth. Hence, wearing it can promote wisdom and bring positivity to your daughter’s life. 

#4. Tanzanite

 Discovered in 1967, tanzanite is a blue-violet gem only found in Tanzania. This gemstone is highly valued and considered extremely rare among jewelry enthusiasts. One carat of tanzanite can cost you up to USD 800 or more, based on its quality.

 The most unique thing about this gemstone is its trichroic property, making it a unique wedding gift for your daughter. Trichroic gemstones appear in different colors based on the source of light. For example, it can look blueish in the morning and purple at night.

 Many believe that tanzanite speeds up physical recovery processes and might possibly heal the wearer’s injuries. It might also boost your daughter’s immune system. 

 Other than that, tanzanite has good spiritual properties. It heightens intuition and ensures spiritual growth by bringing serenity, or emotional healing, to the wearer. With this gemstone, your daughter can find balance in her life, become calm, and explore a path of personal evolution. It can also enhance self-expression and communication skills, which are essential in a marriage. 

 In conclusion, rare gemstones would be the perfect gift that would bring positivity to your daughter’s life. But before buying one, you should look for certain things to ensure the gem’s authenticity. 

 Check whether there are natural inclusions and scratches on the gem. Moreover, avoid looking for cheap alternatives. That’s because cheaper gemstones are usually produced in a lab and won’t have the same natural beauty or metaphysical properties. You should also check the gem’s color concentrations and opacity before buying.

The root of evil is selfishness ~ we will never be good enough for Him

Seratopical Revolution: The New Gold Standard in Skin Care

 


Seratopical Revolution offers a wide variety of skincare products to address signs of aging, dryness, and other concerns. Carefully formulated for maximum effect, these creams, serums, and sprays can help you look and feel your best. Check out the many benefits of this new gold standard in skincare.

Help Promote Youthful Skin

 Aging is a natural process, and many people wear their fine lines with pride. However, there are environmental factors that can speed up the process. Taking preventative measures can keep you looking youthful for longer.

 Pollution and ultraviolet light can cause oxidative stress on skin cells, which damages cells. Certain ingredients, such as vitamin C, can fight this stress, leading to healthier skin.

 Additionally, specialized products can improve specific issues. Two of the most common are dryness and dullness.

Moisturizes and Plumps

 Dryness exacerbates the appearance of wrinkles, especially in the delicate skin around the eyes. Therefore, hydration is a crucial part of anti-aging skin care.

 Well-formulated moisturizers don't just hydrate your skin — they help it retain moisture. Certain ingredients can repair and bolster the moisture barrier, ensuring your cells don't lose as much water.

Brightens and Smooths

 Dull skin can make you look older. Fortunately, the right products can brighten and even improve texture.

 Exfoliants remove the dead skin cells that make your face appear ashy. Getting rid of this layer also allows moisturizers and serums to penetrate the skin.

 Products such as Seratopical Gleaming can also help by boosting elasticity and collagen production. Regular use can make your skin appear more even and reduce the appearance of dark spots.

Natural Ingredients

 People have used natural ingredients for beauty for thousands of years. Today, top skin care combines scientific knowledge and nature's bounty for highly effective skin care products:

• Coriander Seed Extract: Due to its healthy inflammation support, coriander seed extract is excellent for sensitive skin. It's also detoxifying, antiseptic and antifungal.

• Lavender Oil: Distilled from the lavender blossom, this ingredient can reduce inflammation, unclog pores, and even kill bacteria. As a result, it's great for fighting acne, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, evening skin tone, and soothing dry skin.

• Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is rich, making it excellent for hydration and bolstering the moisture barrier. It can soften skin, reduce redness and dark spots, decrease inflammation, and kill harmful microorganisms.

• Shea Butter: Shea nuts have many skin-friendly nutrients and offer deep, nourishing hydration. When turned into a butter, they're excellent for boosting collagen production, relieving irritation, reducing inflammation, providing partial UV ray protection, and soothing sensitive skin.

• Marula Oil: Marula comes from the marula tree's seeds and nuts. It can enhance skin penetration, making it a great complementary ingredient. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, boosts elasticity, contains antioxidants, is non-comedogenic, and seals in moisture.

 Looking through ingredients and Seratopical reviews can help you find the right products for your skin care needs. Once you have a dedicated regimen, you should see a real difference. Remember, your skin is your largest organ and deserves to be a priority.

 Oatmeal is a healthy option for breakfast but it can be time-consuming to make, even in the microwave. Then you have to wait for the oats to cool down.

Overnight Oats Just Got Easier and More Nutritious

 To make overnight oats you need oatmeal and milk, along with some superfoods like chia seeds or flax.

Rowing burns more calories plus builds muscle in just 20 minutes!

4. NIRA Pro Skincare Device


The NIRA Pro skincare device is a gift that you need to treat yourself to. This facial laser device is amazing! The NIRA Pro is a painless at-home laser treatment that is FDA-Cleared and clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It is a better than Botox device! This facial device is my beauty secret to amazing skin at 58. The best part is it only takes minutes a day to use and you will see results in 90 days or you can get your money back.

 The NIRA Pro Laser uses laser technology to gently heat the skin dermis to stimulate natural collagen production.  As we age, our bodies naturally stop producing collagen – causing the skin to wrinkle and sag. It is the production of collagen that helps our skin become firmer and the collagen then starts to fill in those fine lines and wrinkles to make them less noticeable.

7. Nutr Milk Maker


 I stopped buying plant-based milk at the store for so many reasons. Most nut milk that you buy at the store is mostly water and contains preservatives and fillers. I now make creamy nut milk at home and I am saving so much money. I am also saving the environment as I no longer have to toss out empty containers. 

My favorite product that I use to make nut milk is the Nutr Milk Maker. This handy appliance makes the most delicious creamy nut milk and even oat milk. The Nutr milk machine is super easy to use and makes dairy-free milk in just 5 minutes. The best part is how easily I can clean up the machine.

8. BEAM Minerals


 We live in a world that can be toxic to our bodies. From plastic in our water sources to pesticides in our food and pollution in our air. We can do our best to control what we eat and what products we use in our homes. We can also use an air purifier to clean the air. The problem is this may not be enough and our bodies may need help detoxing all the toxins.

BEAM Minerals is a product that I discovered 2 years ago when I suffered my mold sickness after we discovered mold in our home. These minerals played an important part in my healing as they helped my cells detox all the stuff like mold. BEAM Minerals can benefit everyone by helping their cells detox. 

 This amazing mineral supplement contains humic. Humic is a concentrated mineral compound that occurs naturally in soil. Humic is a good general detoxifier—it binds to heavy metals and plasticizers like BPA and it also gently removes cellular waste. Humic is able to also detoxify glyphosate from our cells and is better than most standard detoxifiers.

9. Trace Minerals Magnesium


 I discovered the amazing benefits of magnesium and this is a mineral that most people need to take. Signs of needing more magnesium may be muscle pain, insomnia, gut problems, or even mental focus issues. The reason most people are deficient in magnesium is our food supply lacks this nutrient due to the simple fact that most produce travels up to a week before you buy it. We also need more magnesium if we are active or have chronic conditions.

 For me, personally, Trace Minerals magnesium helped me with my struggles of falling asleep. This mineral helped my body relax and I was finally able to fall asleep within 30 minutes. Magnesium has helped my active boys with their muscle cramps and it has helped my husband lower his blood pressure.
